Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778, also known as Carl von Linné) was a 18th century Swedish scientist, know as the founder of modern taxonomic biology. While born in near Älmhult in the province of Småland, Linnaeus spent most of his life as a professor at the university in Uppsala. He also made several scientific tours around Sweden, mapping flora and fauna of the realm. While he only left Sweden once, studying for some time in Harderwijk in the Netherlands, his apprentices ventured around the globe.
